    Aaron is a maker; from sculptures to business, he is fascinated with the process of taking an idea from concept to reality. In his time at Northwestern, he has cultivated a curiosity for the way in which we interact with our surroundings, fueling his passion in design and driving a desire to take a deep dive into the problems which face our world. He is currently co-founder and CEO of Sproutel, the creator of Jerry the Bear – an interactive teaching toy for children diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Aaron has shared his expertise in robotics and entrepreneurship through speaking at numerous conferences including CUSP, TEDxProvidence, IFTF, A Better World by Design, NYU Ambition, and SEEED.
